Arm tingling and numb,little spider veins showing up above bicep

Arm tingling and numb,,little spider veins showing up above bicep, below rotator cup I have lifted heavy weights all winter and noticed just at the top of my right arm bicep little bluish spider veins that are continuing to expand around the area. my right hand and arm keep tingling and losing feeling as if e somewhere. ust woke up this morning with right arm numb and and feels like that arm alone has just been through a workout like it feels puffed and is also a darker color as if there is no good amount of oxygen getting to the arm or the blood flow is being cut off by a pinched nerve. But why are these little bluish purple veins showing up just below my rotator cup at the top of my bicep and seeming to spread every day I look at it?

hi
dont worry about vein as its normal.
after some days of exercise or other work chance of change in size ,position of vein is there.
normally they change its position .
when u have good muscle mass ,they need more oxygen so more deoxygeneted blood in vein ,so they look like more prominent

I am 67 years old and was told by a neurologist some time ago that I had a cluster of veins on the right side of my head. I also have severe spider veins. I have tinnitus, problems with balance, shortness of breath, weakness, palpitations, low blood pressure, tingling around my mouth, tingling in lower legs. I have had cardiac studies and all were negative. Going back to my family physician tomorrow. Not sure what s going on. I need help preparing for that visit. His initial diagnosis was vertigo. However, I think more is going on. I feel so very ill. My father died of a stroke.

I have burning, tingling sensation in my legs even during the day. Do you think I need to have the arteries cleaned? I have a very sensible lifestyle with good food and plenty of exercise - I am 70 years of age and I have also noticed many many spider veins appearing on my legs.

Hello, I went to a vein center for help with spider veins and leg pain, I stand all day, anyway, the ultrasound showed pulsatile something and they asked if I had heart problems. I am not aware of any but sometimes have a weird heartbeat or chest pain with stress. I am 40 yrs old and not at all overweight. They said it is usually seen with right side heart failure. Should I see a doctor about this?

Hello, I recently was diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear , impingement, tendonitis and now frozen shoulder . 2 days ago I fell down the stairs and stopped myself by extending my bad arm behind me. My arm has small lump by bicep, bruise by the bicep area and painful to rotate out. Could I have injured my tendon further? I ve been icing and resting it.

doctor1 MD

I HAD A TEAR IN ROTATOR CUFF AND SURGEON UNABLE TO REPAIR, HE ALSO CUT THE BICEP TENDON ON PURPOSE TO REATTACH IT SELF. IT DIDN T DO THAT AND NOW I HAVE THE SAME PAIN IN SHOULDER AS BEFORE SURGERY AND THOBBING PAIN IN MUSCLES SURROUNDING THE ARMPIT AND SHOULDER. THERAPY DOESN T HELP AND THE NEW CORTISONE SHOT DIDN T HELP. I AM ONLY 50 AND CAN T LIVE WITH THIS PAIN FOR YEARS

Hello there I had a blankart operation on my shoulder in October 2011 and in Feb 2012 I got tendonitis and burcitious. This has been more so on then off up until now. I once again have it and it’s quite bad I have lost range of movement and I am in constant pain not matter what meds I take. I have tried anti inflame, steroid injection, pain killers, heat packs, cold packs etc. I cannot fully immobilize the shoulder due to my risk of frozen shoulder . I have also been forced to change my career due to my shoulder. As you may understand I am getting quite sick of this and there is no reason as to why this is occurring. The results are as follows. Ultrasound of the left Shoulder and the results are as follows the biceps tendon and rotator cuff tendons appear within normal limits with no evidence of focal tears or tendinitis there is inflammatory thickening of the subacrominal bursa this is associated with bursal bunching on abduction Comment There is inflammatory thickening of the subacromial bursa.
